I would love it if that were the case at Newcastle United but I’m not holding my breath.
Newcastle United have today revealed in an official statement that eight players have put pen to paper on new contracts.
Having recently encountered a number of young players who have been released from academies, or not given an opportunity, I find it amazing that often the reason given is their size.
A lot of young players with a great deal of talent, the team has been playing pretty well & if the chances keep coming, then eventually goals will as well.
Rolando Aarons still hasn’t started a Premier League match and I also worry for Adam Armstrong when he comes back from loan.
Interesting stats revealed as to how many Premier League minutes Newcastle and Sunderland’s young players got last season, compared to the other 18 clubs.
Andy Woodman says that young players at Newcastle are all very lucky because Alan Pardew ‘plays young footballers’.
Alan Pardew says Newcastle made a decision 2 years ago not to buy young players from abroad, something which wll be news to the likes of Haidara, Perez etc.
Nobby Solano believes young English players get too much too young, while their South American counterparts are more driven as a route out of poverty.
Of the last 60 deals in the transfer window, over 40 of them [players brought to the Premier League] were from overseas. You have to say [to young players in England] ‘what are you going to do about it?’
